Superb introduction to World War 1. Starting in 1870, this museum does a wonderful job of introducing people to the background and effects of the war; both at home and at the fronts.
Visited the end of May 2015. Wonderful museum with a fabulous collection of items. Particularly enjoyed the items relating to everyday life in the trenches. The layout in the open space was well thought out and moved visitors easily through the exhibits. Glad I made the trip to Meaux!
Absolutely fascinating display with a wide range of knowledge and exhibits.
Utopia PhilosophiaMuseum exciting, skimpy and including the course, tremendously well illustrated and modern, can easily grasp the various aspects of the great war. Allow at least half a day for good enriched places! In addition, tariff-26 years is very accessible in comparison including D-day Normandy museums. Furthermore, the visit is marked by photos taken of current conflicts so allowing a judicious parallel between the context of the great war and current geopolitics.
Jean-Luc HINDRYCKXBeautiful museum dedicated to the terrible first world war. Parts collection, uniform and put in scene will tell you the daily lives of our hairy to the younger generations and neophytes. A cloakroom is available and count €10 for the entry ticket. Discover.
